How to Keep Cut Basil Fresh

I usually like to cut my basil right off the plant when I am ready to cook with it, but sometimes I receive cut basil from friends or from my CSA that I need to keep fresh.  How do I do that?  I keep it in a vase on my windowsill!  That way it's right there ready to use when I'm cooking!  Sometimes I've been able to keep basil alive for a few weeks in a vase!  I just make sure it has plenty of water each day.  It's funny how often I'll decide we need a dinner that revolves around fresh basil since it's right there under my nose all day!
